The Biden Regime on Wednesday announced $1.85 billion in additional security assistance for Ukraine.

Literally.

Per the Pentagon:

On December 21, as part of President Zelenskyy’s visit to the White House, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced $1.85 billion in additional security assistance for Ukraine. This includes the authorization of a Presidential Drawdown of security assistance valued at up to $1 billion, as well as $850 million in assistance via the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI).

The Presidential Drawdown is the twenty-eighth such drawdown of equipment from DoD inventories for Ukraine that the Biden Administration has authorized since August 2021. Capabilities in this package include:

  • One Patriot air defense battery and munitions;
  • Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS);
  • 500 precision-guided 155mm artillery rounds;
  • 10 120mm mortar systems and 10,000 120mm mortar rounds;
  • 10 82mm mortar systems;
  • 10 60mm mortar systems;
  • 37 Cougar Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) Vehicles;
  • 120 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs);
  • Six armored utility trucks;
  • High-speed Anti-radiation missiles (HARMs);
  • Precision aerial munitions;
  • Over 2,700 grenade launchers and small arms;
  • Claymore anti-personnel munitions;
  • Demolition munitions and equipment;
  • Night vision devices and optics;
  • Tactical secure communications systems;
  • Body armor and other field equipment.

Under USAI, the DoD will also provide Ukraine with:

  • 45,000 152mm artillery rounds;
  • 20,000 122mm artillery rounds;
  • 50,000 122mm GRAD rockets;
  • 100,000 rounds of 125mm tank ammunition;
  • SATCOM terminals and services;
  • Funding for training, maintenance, and sustainment.

This is in addition to the $45 billion in aid to Ukraine written into the latest Omnibus spending bill making its way through Congress.

According to the Associated Press, Zelensky is preparing to tell Congress that the $45 billion in new aid under consideration in the Omnibus bill making its way through Congress is not enough money.

  1. The people worked in the factories to make weaponry for the national security of their country. Did they know they were being paid to commit treason against their fellow Americans, were they knowingly involved in un-American activities, or did they actually believe they were being paid to keep the “Republic” well armed against invaders coming in from the outside? They must have known that the resources used to manufacture the weaponry belonged to the People who entrusted them to provide them with everything necessary for defending themselves from all enemies, foreign and domestic, including those from within the “government”.

    So, they made all these weapons from wealth belonging to the rightful owners of that wealth, got paid MONEY for it, and now, the work of their treacherous hands, working for the Corporation, does not go to the American people. It goes to Ukraine. Everything they needed to enforce their Law is being siphoned out of their grasp! The people who got paid to work in those factories committed treason against the People for participating in the theft of their wealth and their “terrible implements of the soldier, which is the birth right of every American”.
    Intolerable acts!
